Apple may have moved on to smartphones with bigger displays as is evident on its more recent iPhone models, but there are, apparently, still some people who prefer to use a handset that’s just as big as the older iPhone, albeit has the right tools to handle their modern day smartphone needs.
The Cupertino-based tech giant heeded the call and officially announced its new handset dubbed as the iPhone SE
Apple’s new smartphone is homage to its previous flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5. Most of the latter’s features are carried over to the new handset which include the 4-inch Retina display and its classy aluminum chassis.
This is where, however, the similarities between the iPhone SE and iPhone 5 stops. Internally, the former is entirely different beast, running on Apple’s new A9 processor and sports an NFC chip which will be used for Apple Pay.
iPhone SE Specs and Price
Other new features of the new Apple SE include an improved 12-megapixel rear camera and a Lightning port for charging and data transfer.
Preorder for the new Apple iPhone SE will commence on the 24th of March and will begin shipping a week after. Apple’s new smartphone will start at USD399 for the 16GB model and will also be offered in 64GB capacity for USD499.
